Spring Bass Fishing Buyer's Guide

New Worms, Creatures, Rods, Reels, Line, and more! Spring fishing is is the best time to try new tackle because the bass are aggressive. We cut the learning curve today by trying all sorts of new gear and bringing you our top picks!

Matt and Tim are both tackle junkies. Between the two of them they try the vast majority of tackle that enters the market. There are a ton of new products each year but few are truly innovative and even less stand the test of time. We do our best to sort through the mess and find the diamonds in the rough.

Today we are looking at a variety of different products which are outlined below. They are listed in no particular order and all will help you become a more effective angler this Spring and Summer.

Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide!

The Holiday Buyer's guide officially kicks off with this 2018/2019 Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide! For this video we combined the Buyer's Guide with actual jig fishing instruction focused on the Late Fall and Winter Jig bite. Whether you flip, pitch, swim, or stroke a jig, you're going to learn some tactics that will help your jig fishing.

We begin by breaking the Fall/Winter down with 4 jigs. We want you to analyze your lakes and decide which of the jigs best fits your style. After that we throw in 2 other "must have" jigs for year-round fishing.

Below you'll find a complete breakdown of the jigs, trailers, color selection, even rod/reel recommendations that you should take a look at. Regardless of your budget, there is something for everyone here and we've laid it out as simply as possible.
